My Love Remains - Poem by Linda Harnett

My love remains where I belong,
A fragrant scent, the sweetest song,
Thoughts lie softly on my heart,
To stab me with a poisoned dart,
Now tarnished by my one desire,
And ever eager for the fire,
My love alone will light the flame,
To leave it burning, speak his name,
Whisper silently within,
I am nothing without him.

Yet I am all because of this,
A love that touched me with a kiss,
His face returns to haunt sometimes
And when it comes, the poetry rhymes,
The sun sends forth a healing ray,
And the child in me comes out to play,
For time won’t dim the memory,
It’s branded in the heart of me,
I face the truth, no more to lie,
I knew his love, now I can die.
